Responsibility

Committed to more than pizza

Workplace Safety

Jane’s Dough Foods is committed to establishing a zero-injury workplace. Our LEADS Safety Steering Committee enables and empowers our Associates to play an active role in ensuring a safe working environment. The LEADS committee is responsible for peer-to-peer training and providing meaningful feedback for continuous improvement. Management and Associates work together to ensure a safe workplace by striving to reduce risks and eliminate potential hazards. At Jane’s Dough Foods, we put safety first by starting every meeting with a reminder about safety.

Community Involvement

Our Associates volunteer a tremendous amount of time and contribute impressive sums of money every year to support the American Red Cross of Greater Columbus and other community initiatives. Since 2009, the company has also partnered with Pelotonia, an annual bike ride to raise money for cancer research at The Ohio State University’s James Cancer Hospital. The company is also an active supporter of Breast Cancer awareness month and donates proceeds to the Stephanie Spielman Fund for Cancer Research, and since 2013 has partnered with Operation Second Chance to assist injured veterans and actively military personnel at the Walter Reed Memorial Hospital.

Environmental Responsibility

Jane’s Dough Foods has been implementing sustainable practices since it was founded in 2008. Our vision is to become a zero landfill manufacturing plant by 2013, a goal that is not very far away. Currently, we compost protein byproducts, supply scrap dough for animal feed, and recycle product packaging materials. Jane’s Dough Foods also uses bio-based lubricants in all of its production equipment. The company received the 2010 SWACO (Solid Waste Authority of Central Ohio) Award for Leadership in recognition of its environmental efforts.

 

"Our innovative new sleeve wrap is a big win for the environment."
Stan Jacot, Executive Vice President/General Manager, Jane's Dough Foods

Our environmental commitment also extends to packaging source reduction. Our new eco-friendly sleeve wrap utilizes 24% less paperboard and is lighter in weight than our previous pizza box. In addition, the new package allows us to pack 40% more pizzas per pallet, better optimizing fuel and freight costs.
